Good service, but the food needs to be worked on

Well the title says it all. Service was great. They should do something about their Dumplings. And they should definitely do something about the damp smell in their restaurant.

Definitely worth dining!

One of those places that score quite high on the ambiance and gets it bang on when it comes to the food as well. Dimsums are a complete delight! The staff in the restaurant is pretty cordial and assisted us on the main course. The cherry on the cake was that it didn't dig a whole in my pocket!

Very good dimsums...

I love the Indian version of Chinese food , Chindian as it is popularly called never fails to comfort you and mainly; one is hardly spoilt for choice practically ordering the same food every time. And on the other side is real Chinese food, where you have to wade through pages of menu to decide on the right sauce, the right combination of vegetables and the right kind of starch to go along.

Chao Ban in Kalaghoda, Mumbai is one such stand alone restaurant which attempts to lure people with authentic Oriental food. Split on two levels it is nicely done up with the settings which are contemporary but there still a lot of elements like the Chinese pots etc which still gives it a classic, old school feel.

The beverage menu is fair and represents all categories with a limited selection and has a decent line up of cocktails and mocktails. I chose the virgin lemon grass cooler (Rs 200) and it was extremely refreshing. The food menu in a leather folder looked very neat and it has a selection of Dumplings (Steamed, Soaked, panfried, fried), Cheung Fun, Appetizers, Soups, Mains, Rice, Noodles and desserts.

My selection:

Mix veg crystal dumpling (Rs 265): Very nicely rolled and with a clear translucent skin these dumplings were moist with mushrooms, veggies with water chestnuts giving it a bite
Sticky rice in Lotus leaves (Rs 250): Also called Zongzi or Zong is staple Chinese food of Sticky rice stuffed with vegetables/meat wrapped in bamboo or other big leaves and steamed. This one was very filling with a stuffing dominated by fleshy and chewy Shitake mushrooms. The condiments on the table, spring onions and pepper and the sesame dip went well. Beware, its a meal in itself!
Soaked veg dumpling (Rs 320): I always maintain that innovation in food is good for it to evolve but this one is more of convenience than innovation, moreover an opportunity to charge more. Nonetheless I liked the steamed dumpling in a soy chilli sauce with crispy garlic.
Crunchy veg Cheung Fun (Rs 295): Cheung Fun literally translates and ‘Intestine Noodle’ because of its shape and the flat thick rice noodle it’s rolled up in. It is traditionally steamed and has a velvety texture. This one is a tweak of a spring roll wrapped in a rice noodle and hence ‘crunchy’. But I would prefer the traditonal variant and also they could have done better than this lackluster presentation.
Four Seasons Beans (Rs 395): Never ever thought that I would like French beans as much. A dry preparation of steamed beans tossed in a ginger chilli soy and comes in a good portion.

Vegetable Pot Rice (Rs 525): Long grained rice in a light sauce with a dominant star anise fragrance and all kind of vegetables from carrots to lotus stems tossed in. This dish laden with Umami, soy does its bit to give you that but this hinted the use of MSG. The Chef denied it and I took it with a pinch of salt. Great portion size and tasted good.

Plus:

Good food and reasonable pricing
A good choice of dimsums
A Lunch buffet on weekdays for Rs 650++ and a dimsum dinner for 800++

Minus:

Rs 800 glass of Selbach Riesling served warm. The wait staff a little clueless on the beverage specially the cocktail menu.
Dessert selection full with pastries and mousses with no Asian touch!
I miss windows/daylight in the place.

Verdict:

They dole out a good experience of Asian food. They however require a lot of finesse if they aspire to come close to the best. Will go back to try the unlimited dim sum dinner!

Dimsum Invasion

I was here for the Dimsum Festival, very attractively priced at 500+taxes for unlimited dimsums. They had almost 8/9 varieties of dimsums from what I remember; what stood out were the Prawn and Spinach Rolls, Char Sui Bao, Pork Puffs and Pork and Chicken Sui Mai.

We were a large group of 15 people, and must thank the staff for all the running around they had to do on that day waiting on 15 people, who kept clamoring for more.

The Pork Puffs were unlike anything I have had before, and I can still recollect the sweet taste of the bread interspersed with pork bits.

Hope they have some specials for the upcoming Kala Ghoda Fest, will definitely walk in :D

Don't miss Joss anymore!

With the nice bright and refreshing ambience and cuisine of Chao Ban, I'm sure I'm not the only customer who doesn't miss Joss anymore. Loved the crab meat soup and Balinese fish in particular. The appetizer platter we noticed on the adjoining table looked very enticing too! Bon appetite!

Almost as good as Joss!

The dimsums are pretty decent, the creamy asparagus soup with chopped vegetables was great as well.. but the dish which was served well was the chicken barbecue glaze! If you miss Joss a lot, you can come back to Chao Ban.

Good food, Iffy Service A Times

Been there more then once, keep getting the same irritating senior waiter who does not listen and makes non sensical suggestions. Swear we wont go back but then end up going back because the food is good. That sums up my Chao Ban experience. Good solid chinese food in a great decor. Chicken and lamb dishes were outstanding, fish was so so and the drinks were good. Great place for a evening out with family and friends in a non rushed atmosphere. Recommended.

Must Go

Great Chinese cuisine to compliment one of the best interiors in town. No matter what do not miss that Japanese Mary or for the mild hearted try classic whiskey sour or for authentic Chinese experience try Chinese beer - 'Tsing Tao'. Restaurant has opened in place of Joss right below Irish House at kalghoda. Dim-sums and

True Chinese flavors

Went on a weekday for dinner and were the first ones to walk in the restaurant. The ambiance was truly of that a fine dining restaurant and the staff was pretty warm in welcoming us. Although the menu was not very extensive, they have some great choices in dumplings. We ordered prawns & chicken siu mai which had a great flavor but a disappointing serving size. Soup and the main course was suggested by the one taking down our order and it really was a great choice. After the main course, when i was going through the dessert list, i was strongly recommended chocolate mousse, which probably was the best ive had in the city. Overall it was a pleasant experience and it surely is recommended to the oriental cuisine lovers.

HORRRIBLE FOOD

Food is horrible ... The worst dumplings and soup I have ever had.
We tasted the starters and it was horrible so we left it and went to another restaurant. Please do not go at all ....

good surprise!

On a lazy sunday I was with friends and we wanted to try something new so we decided to go to Chao ban. Actually my expectations were pretty low,i expected a regular chinese restaurant with oily chinese food but what I experienced was totally different! Their food is really amazing and very original , in addition the service is good and the ambience quiet and calm which is perfect to chill with family and friend
I would recommend it to everyone!
